Leeks for Leek

a potager for the front garden

These green-fingered clients had a longing for a beautiful greenhouse and space to grow vegetables.

The only sunny spot in their property was  the sloping east facing front garden.  The main access to the house was up a very steep set of steps, rising 4m from the road.  The finished garden has a formal layout of Staffordshire brick steps and raised beds.. A western red cedar pergola was designed to match the Gabriel Ash greenhouse which sits on a stout retaining wall against the garage.  Regular raised beds provide rich soil for vegetables.  A ‘physic’/herb garden gives year round colour and scent to the lower garden.  Even the bin store has a green roof – it is all in the details in this compact and productive garden.
